House On Ash Tree Lane

Mark. Z Danielewski

House Of Leaves (novel)


The real protagonist in the the novel "House of Leaves", this building is perpetually reshaping its interior spaces while apparently unchanged from the outside. The novel charts numerous attempts to document and explore the mysterious structure.


While smell is a wonderful phenomena we generally experience it in concert with our other senses. We are so unused to consciously identifying smells that most of us would be lost if forced to depend on this sense in isolation. We no longer need to be able to judge things like, distance, age, danger levels, toxicity or season by smell alone. The perpetually lightless environment of this house requires those inside to revert to almost primitive sense instincts to survive.
